Documentation:
* Children #7 and #8 may be one and the same. The name of Travis Ford comes from oral family history. We do not find a gravestone for him, but we do find a gravestone for Stephen T. Ford, Jr. in Bear Creek Cemetery in Hinds Co, MS, that we know is the child of Stephen and Elizabeth.
* Stephen Ford, Sr. died in Marion Co, MS. His widow and children made the move to the Hinds Co area along with a large portion of the FORD family around 1830.
